Data and ethics

Open data policy

The provisions for open access to research data are described in the EU3D Grant Agreement Arts 29.3 Open access to research data and 39.2 Processing of personal data by the beneficiaries. After the end of the project (31/01/2023), and as soon as project results have been published in the form of peer-reviewed publications, all data generated by EU3D, including metadata, documentation and code, will be deposited in a certified national data repository which provides a support structure for data preservation and sharing as well as safe and sustainable data storage facilities. As a general rule, project partners will use the NSD data archive, while partners may also choose to store in other repositories.

For more details on making data openly accessible, see the DMP section 2.2, or contact the coordination office at ARENA.

Data Management Plan

The EU3D Data Management Plan (DMP) ensures that the processing of data by EU3D researchers is both legally and ethically correct and methodologically sound, and that any personal data used in the research complies with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which entered into force on 25 May 2018. The DMP describes the types of data that are generated and collected during the project, the standards used, how the data will be exploited and shared for verification and reuse, as well as the preservation and storage of data. The DMP evolves during the lifespan of the project. The DMP and information on each dataset will be updated at regular intervals (v1-v4: months 5, 14, 23 and 48).
